    Polishing the badge and collar brass. Ironing the uniform, polishing your boots. It is all very important. I have seen LEOs with wrinkly, dirty uniforms. Overall, a look I am sure the Chief and Sheriff would be not look fondly on.

    Wow, Sgt... Those are some awfully shiny patches on that paramedic's shoulders! LOL (Or is it just the pic?)

    I am a huge stickler in regards to uniforms (aside from the goatee). I've been known to randomly walk up to other officers without saying a word and straighten their uniform pins or collar brass. I always get weird looks for that.

    When I worked in Florida, we kept switching the uniform policy for goatees. Full beards were against regulation. Goatees were authorized for a while. Then the Evil Spock factor kicked in and people said we looked too intimidating with goatees.

    Then we could have them again.

    Yep, it sucks in there. The monitors mounted on the wall above the windows don't even work anymore but we can't get them taken down so they just sit up there with their cables hanging down. Paperwork and magazines stacked anywhere. CRT monitors jury rigged to VCRs and powerstrips. Staplers, phones and boxes full of pens, pencils and highlighter markers are pearched on any flat surface.
    Some of us have begged for updated equiptment such as flat screen monitors and new DVRs along with decent camera joystick controls. The plant managers have turned down everything we requested. Hey, we are just contracters. We work with what they give us.
    In all fairness, the laptops belong to me and my partner. Next to the soda bottles you will seean external DVD burner he was using to copy DVDs. The computer on the trash can was one I brought from home to work on. We swapped a fan, power supply and DVD burner.
    Plates and drinks are common since we eat our meals at the desk. No breakroom and no breaktime even if there was. The plate on the desk in that photo was one my partner had used for his biscuits that morning.
    After tommorows shift I'll post a updated photo, without me in it, in the Shack thread.
    For now, let's let this topic rest and get this thread back on track.
    Uniforms anyone?

    No offence intended EMTGuard... but your workspace looks like a cyclone just went through

    Hoot, it isn't that bad. Some people can do, and some people will never do. He is one who can do quite a lot in my book. He's a brilliant SO, and a credit to the profession. Look at the total package and not one aspect, which may not be seen by the public anyway.

Cables are hanging down (hope an OSHA inspector doesn't happen by), computers perched precariously on top of wastebaskets and at the edges of desks where they can be easily knocked off. And, the place is a total mess with plates, pop bottles, etc. It makes a terrible visual statement about your operation, no matter how good it might be otherwise - and anyone walking by the windows can see it!

    This is one thing you can take to the bank: Once people get the impression that "security is just a bunch of slobs", you might never change their minds.

    Here is our uniform vs. our paramedics. They wear tan and brown, we wear black.
